THIS CAR MATTERS: The Marmon Wasp, Winner of the First Indianapolis 500

At this year’s historic 100th running of the Indianapolis 500, a very special car took to the track for a ceremonial lap with four-time Indy 500 winner Al Unser behind the wheel. The Marmon Wasp raced  to victory under the guidance of Ray Harroun at the first Indy 500 in 1911. Check out our latest THIS CAR MATTERS film to learn more about this amazing car.
